In pursuing their degrees students pass through two phases
We offer several courses in form of seminars each course lasts 3-4 days and validate 3
credit hours, seminars are conducted in several locations worldwide usually 2 seminars
are conducted following each other so that students can validate 6 credits each time
they visit EGS, after each seminar students are asked to write a research paper to
obtain the credits.
The study plan is unique since it places emphasis on bridging the students educational activities to their personal, long-term career goals. The program also encourages them to pursue independent research, publishing, consulting, travel and teaching.

the lead on their own, unique project. Dissertation is a big and important part of the
